I've got both of the 24th shows, including the NRPS sets, ready to go. I can't wait.

I'll probably email David Lemieux about this stuff. I'll give it a few days though because I only recently emailed him about the "Matrix/Winterland 17th" and Winterland 23rd tapes from December 1970. After hearing some snippets of the "17th" show I concluded it wasn't recorded at the Matrix - it sounds nothing like a small club. Add to that the fact that DL played some of the "17th" tape in the Taper's Section but said it was from the 23rd, and you've got yourself yet another tape date mystery.

Please keep us posted. Your investigative efforts are most inspiring and impressive.
Maybe someday we can look forward to a Festival Express expanded box set, complete with a fully loaded booklet, but with what we know regarding the documentation so far, it would be quite a project. Wishful thinking, I know, but I’d buy it!

Bear swears it was all one show on the 24th . That would be , I believe , a 56 song night for JG . 2 sets electric GD , 1 set acoustic GD , and 1 set NRPS .
All those Cap. Theater shows have something extra .
What a great journey A. Please consider vapors request , keep us in the loop .
